Kron Darkbow has fled the city of Bond, along with healer mage Randall Tendbones and professional duelist Adara Corvus. Everywhere they turn are enemies. With a price on their heads, old foes on their trail, and dangers waiting for them along the road and in every village, it seems nowhere is safe.
Even the goal of their travels offers no peace, for the group rides to the land of Kobalos where Randall must face that nation’s Lord Verkain, the alleged Dark King of the North.
But before Kron, Randall and Adara can make their way to Kobalos, there are demons to avoid, monsters to slay, assassins to defeat, and the country of East Ursia to pass, a land where Adara is wanted and wizards such as Randall are put to death.
Then there are the Prisonlands, Kron’s old stomping grounds, where the prisoners are now armed and free, and are taking their vengeance on all who cross their path.

"Johnston is also known as a horror writer, and his talents there serve him well in some of the darker aspects of the story. The last third of the second book in particular, is quite chilling ..." -- Jesse Flohrs, Fantasy Faction
